The Solution Focused Approach
Working with Children and Young People

Friday 21 June
9.30am - 4pm
Online Workshop

Solution Focused

The Solution Focused Approach (SFBT) is currently a leading method in leadership, coaching, education, and counselling throughout the world. The principles of the Solution Focused Approach are simple to understand and can be mastered with practice - it has been likened to learning a language.  One of the keys is developing a mindset that focuses on people’s resources, strengths and the outcome/s they want from the session.

Working with Children and young people with the Solution Focused Approach

Teachers, Managers, Team leaders, Counsellors, Social workers, Nurses, Pastors, Life-Coaches, Coaches and Parents will all glean precious gems from this workshop. Participants will gain skills and knowledge that can be immediately applied to their context or environment. At the heart of Solution Focused practice is the belief that change is possible and change is happening all the time. When a client is asked to notice that change it amplifies it and makes a difference to the client. It is a great pleasure and honour to walk with clients during this process.

"I am motivated more and more when I have done these workshops by the positive feedback I receive and the change it has made to every participant. I enthusiastically keep receiving regular global education, gleaning good practice and passion for the Solution Focused Approach. I loved a comment during one of the practice tasks in a Timaru workshop in 2020: "I can't ask about the problem... everyone in Timaru needs to come to one of these..."
